Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Factory Mode

OK, after trying everything I could find on the 'Net (unsuccessfully, obviously) I decided to do one final search before buying a new handset and came across which is the only thing I found that worked - my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 no longer continually boots into factory mode, which means that it is no longer as useful as a 80.5 x 151.1 x 9.4 mm, 182.5g brick!

Having then found this, I followed another too many hours and too many links to eventually get the LiquidSmooth 4.4.4 ROM installed (basically involving needing to use the TWRP Recovery environment to reset permissions and reformat the entire device ( and then the ClockworkMod recovery environment from to load the LiquidSmooth 4.4.4 ROM (, I found that the phone still had no signal at all.  It looks like the phone chip really has died.  Oh, well - here comes a Note 3! :)
